Although an early build Firefox 11 was made available through official Mozilla ftp server and other third party sites, but later the download links were taken down due to  a security bug reported by ZDI, now fixed in the final build.

March 13 has been the scheduled release date for the stable build of Firefox 11, but mozilla on Monday announced that the new version wouldn’t be  rolled out on Tuesday because of two reasons : 1. Microsoft Patch Tuesday 2. Security vulnerability reported by ZDI.
